HotRussianBrides Protects Members From Russian Scammers

12. October 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

Last month, the Russian news site Pravda ran a story about an American man who was duped by a bogus Russian bride. The gentlemen “met” and fell in love with a lady on an unnamed website and began sending money on a regular basis, close to $9,000 over the course of a few months. The gentleman grew suspicious after receiving word of the lady’s alleged death, and eventually complained to Russian authorities. After a lengthy investigation, officials discovered that the American gentleman had never been in touch with a Russian woman, that he had in fact been communicating with two Russian men. The Western suitor was both heartbroken and furious to realize that he had fallen prey to a classic Russian bride scam

It’s stories like this that give Russian women and Russian dating a bad name. However, members of HotRussianBrides don’t have to worry about being duped by shady ladies or miscreant men. Here’s why.


Video Validation

HotRussianBrides validates the identity of each and every lady on the site to ensure they are who they claim. How? Every lady who wants to use our service must provide a valid photo ID which we then compare with her profile information to ensure there are no inconsistencies. In addition, the ladies must, on camera, read and sign an agreement stating that they agree to follow the Terms of Use, that they are using the service of her own free will, that they won’t accept money to participate on HotRussianBrides.com, and that they won’t request money or gifts from our members. Thanks to this innovative video validation, if there is ever any question concerning the legitimacy of a lady’s profile, HotRussianBrides.com can produce video documentation.


Live Video Streaming, Customer Service

In addition, thanks to our live video streaming service, members of HotRussianBrides can see women on camera for themselves and know they are communicating with real ladies, not Russian scammers named Boris or Sergei. Not only that, but our customer service staff is available 7 days a week to answer questions and investigate any and all scammer complaints. Our members would never have to resort to the difficult task of contacting Russian authorities to report fraud. We’re just an email, a phone call, or an instant message to a web hostess away.

Clearly, the gentleman in the Pravda story chose a Russian dating site with far less, if any, scam fighting features. A free or discount site, perhaps? Though HotRussianBrides may cost more than some competing services, our extensive anti-scam policies and procedures are well worth the additional funds. While we can’t deny that Russian scams exist, we can proudly say that we do everything in our power to fight them.
